Join our ELA team for a full day institute at the IRA Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
The full day institute will be divided into three parts:
1. An overview of the critical role language plays in the new Common Core State Standards and the opportunities these new Standards afford to English Language Learners (ELLs),
2. Workshop of lesson components of an exemplar middle school English Language Arts unit developed by the team that highlights specific strategies that support ELLs’ access and success with authentic Common Core aligned complex texts.
3. Unpacking the metacognitive processes for teachers and students that support teacher professional development and processes that support student learning.
Presenters will include Lydia Stack, members of the Understanding Language ELA work group, and practitioners from our partner districts.
